Hi Amy. Just wanted to let you know that I've been perusing your shelves here, as well as your blog site and, as a result, my already large to be read pile and wish list have grown considerably :-) It seems that there are a lot of great works of historical fiction being published these days! It's especially nice that publishers are re-releasing a number of older works that may otherwise never have come to our attention.
I'm reading Margaret Campbell Barnes' Within the Hollow Crown at the moment, which is about Richard II. Have you read that one? I read my first Campbell Barnes, My Lady of Cleves, earlier this year and was very impressed with it. If you're not familiar with her, although you probably are, most of her works were written in the 1940s and 50s, and centre around an English monarch or someone closely associated with a monarch.
Hi Amy. I'm writing on behalf of the Historical Fiction Group admins to let you know that you are welcome to post about your blog in the group. We suggest the best place for it is the thread titled Parking Lot. In our experience members who star new threads to specifically discuss blog or similar activity get little feedback from other members. As such, we think posting your blog on the Parking Lot thread will give it great visibility.
Before I close, I just wanted to let you know that we admins all agree that your blog is fantastic, and each of us have added it to our list of web favourites!
